Hitting a PR from a deadlift. Doing a Pull Up. Walking a mile. Running a 5k. Running your FIRST triathlon or first Ironman Triathlon! It takes work and time. Right?
If you’re lacking the motivation to achieve your goals, think of a tiny snowball sitting at the top of a hill. What happens when that snowball starts to roll down the hill? It gathers speed, gravity provides momentum, and by the time it reaches the bottom, it’s a HUGE snowball!
Think of your goals in the same way. If you take small steps every day toward a single goal, you’ll eventually feel the momentum as you get closer.
Without momentum, you’ll stall before reaching your goal. What do I suggest?
① Write the goal down where you can see it every day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
② Set a DATE. Like for realz. “I will do my first 5k by _____ or I will hit a PR with my deadlifts by _______.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
③ Make a plan to get to that goal by working the plan backward.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
④ Hire a coach. (Yep, I said it!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⑤ Start FUCKING believing that you can do it. Wake up every day, look in the mirror and tell yourself, “Yes, I can do a 5k Run with proper training, guidance, and a community” or “Yes, I can accomplish my goal to set a PR with my deadlift, because I am training 4 days a week with my coach, who is making me stronger.
Pretty easy, right? Shoot me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org, to tell me your goals! I can’t wait to keep you accountable!
